Bold theater for curious minds
This Beast is bred for no-holds-barred creative rampage. We blend theater, movement, and object into work that oozes with irreverent humor, poignant drama, sensuality, athletic feats, strange beauty, and naked reality. It's hard to describe, so we made up a name for it: dance circus.
Gastrocentric events for merrymakers
We think a good production begins before you walk in the door and ends long after you leave. Our shows offer a night out on the town where you can order a drink at the onstage bar and meet new folks. Food and drink events take place at the theater and off-site locations and usually involve stage performances, wandering acts, and installations.
Support a favorite artistic habit
We work hard for the money. Yet our outspoken art can only exist with your generosity. Make sure its alternative voice continues to be available for your enjoyment and for the benefit of others in your community.
Feast your eye and spirit
Sweet Beasties kick ass onstage. These peculiar theater organisms have been studied over many years by photographer John Brandon. He adds to his collection every month.
The Beast is fueled by a core group of performers and designers. Supercool guests join from time to time. We work fast, tight, with little hierarchy, lots of camaraderie, and a strict no assholes rule.
